The electricity grid of the future
Czech solar PV company Solar Global selected Alfen to supply a 1 MW energy storage system connected to its Prakšice solar PV farm.
Dutch company Alfen developed a mega energy storage system by connecting a large number of BMW car batteries. The system stores the surplus of energy so that it can be used when the grid requires the power at a later moment in time.
Alfen, a provider of a large range of products and services for the electricity grid, has delivered an end-to-end solution for this project, including the energy storage system of approximately 1 MWh, a transformer substation and the grid connection.
The project concerns a large and sustainable energy installation for the Theobroma cacao factory in Nigeria. This innovative system combines solar energy, bio energy from cocoa shells and large-scale battery storage for the sustainable production of energy and steam.
Alfen delivered its 1 MW battery energy storage system “TheBattery” to Engie’s power generation plant in Drogenbos (Brussels). This is the first battery based storage system in Belgium to provide grid stability since the grid operator opened its network for battery systems in May 2017.
